The biopolymer maker expects to construct an additional two-million-square-foot facility near its current 25-acre campus.
Danimer Scientific, a developer and manufacturer of biodegradable materials, announced plans to invest US$700 million in expanding its Bainbridge, Ga., manufacturing operations, nearly quadrupling its workforce in Decatur County.

Applications for Danimer’s biopolymers include additives, aqueous coatings, fibres, filaments, films, hot-melt adhesives, and injection molded articles.
